A sister property to Scarp Ridge Lodge, Sopris House is full of history and character, just like Crested Butte. The original 1882 building infamously became the Spritzer Bar—a saloon bought by Martin Spritzer in 1924 and operated by Slovenian immigrants. Opened by Eleven in September of 2013, the 3,200-square-foot home’s cozy vibe is the perfect smaller twin to Scarp Ridge Lodge. Location is key here—with CB’s shops and restaurants a walk away. And during winter, backcountry stashes are accessed right out the backyard via our tricked-out snowcat aka “The Tucker.”
A Week In the life
Sopris is meant for both the go-big-or-go-home alpha, and the laid-back, tenacious traveler. Ideal for families and small groups of friends, the house is also an add-on to Scarp Ridge Lodge if you require additional rooms. Evenings here are marked by incredible Colorado sunsets and star gazing.
It’s true we all wind up in the kitchen during group gatherings, and with the Sopris House open layout you’ll find yourself there often. The outdoor courtyard is where guests download the day’s adventure, be it in the copper hot tub or around the fire pit. Hit the Sopris Bar with its vintage jukebox and pool table to fuel late-night Colorado throw downs.
Eat & Drink
Sopris House guests are as discerning about meals as they are powder stashes or fishing holes.
